I’m always excited to see places that house contemporary interior in a historic building. What a great designer challenge. How do you show appreciation for the space heritage and create funky atmosphere without period touch? And especially if the historic building faces nothing less than Arc de Triomph in Paris.
Well, Prospect Design have solved this dilemma quite successfully.
I absolutely amazed by the ceiling of the main dining area. The abstract collage of the classical moldings so accurately translates the concept. With the right touches of glitz and glamor (look and the reflective pendant balls and gilded suede frames of the mirrors…yum!) the place scream PARIS.
The night club on the bottom floor continues the same sleek modern design although too neon-y for my taste. I found a few pictures in a “normal” lighting.
You see what I’m talking about? Neon Rainbow (on the pic below) just killing it, don’t you agree? <images via www.prospect-design.com>
